This project will create, implement, and promote a standardized health risk assessment protocol to account for social determinants of health. The protocol will allow health centers to collect data on patient risk that will allow them to better understand and manage their patient populations with needed services and community partnerships, identify which factors are driving higher health care costs and poorer health outcomes, and create more appropriate risk adjustments when operating under value- or performance-based payment systems.
